I was chatting to an American friend of mine a few days ago

“How are you doing?” I asked. “Fine,” He replied. “Well, fine apart from the cicadas.” Now, I don’t know about you. But I had no idea what cicadas were. I’d never heard of them. But my New York buddy explained. Cicadas are small, locust type bugs that sweep the Eastern states in the USA and only make an appearance once …

The New Normal

A phrase that’s been thrown around a lot here in the UK. While much of the world has moved on and started to get back to normal, we seem to be dragging our heels a little. In fact, just this last week our promised “freedom day” where all restrictions would be lifted has been bumped back by another month. That …

Empty Seats

Things are opening up in the UK Back in April, pubs, restaurants and cafes were allowed to reopen – but only serving outside. If you know anything about England then you’ll know this was a bit of a joke… It always pisses it down here in April. So much so, we even have a name for it – April Showers. …

Not everyone is as passionate about containers as I am.

  I know it’s a weird passion to have. But I love to see all the cool things people can do when you give them a container… In my previous blogs, I’ve talked about containers made into houses and people using them as garden offices too.

In recent weeks my personal favourites have been… Government approves contraceptives for squirrels. Church Reverend pictured with crisps on each nipple in 4 day cocaine bender. …

The Rule of Three

They say bad luck comes in 3s… Now, I’m not superstitious, but I have noticed that there seems to be some truth in this… Your car breaks down, you sprain your ankle and you smash your phone screen all in a week. But it’s not only bad luck that subscribes to the rule of three… A few weeks ago an …

A Christian, A Muslim & A Jehovah’s Witness…

Us Brits have some weird quirks. Take apologising as an example. Here in the UK, if you accidentally bump into someone when you’re walking, you apologise profusely. Sounds normal right? But what if they bump into you? You still apologise profusely. Sorry, so sorry, excuse me… It doesn’t matter whose fault it was – it doesn’t even matter if they …

Madness In Myanmar

Myanmar has never really been a place of democratic peace. From military regimes that ruled with an iron fist for decades to accusations of genocide, Myanmar (previously known as Burma) has a bit of a bad reputation. Here in the UK, we’ve handled that in an very British way… Ask an average Brit where Myanmar is and they’ll look at …
